    Nice title right? Lol

    Ok so you guys know I'm connected to over 16k users on LinkedIn.

    One of them said something to the effect that SEO I dead in the next 5 years.

    I wonder how this affects Domaining?

    Will it it kill domaining ?

    Basically he pointed out that in the future SEO is dead because of VOICE SEARCH AND VOICE RESPONSEs.

    I don't really get it nor can explain it so just visit his link below.

    Very interesting.

    Or just read below.

    "I had to leave SEO it's a commodity. I thought we could be different, Google AMP could save the space and make mobile SEO shine. And then it happened.. A big AMP project came along over $100,000 contract. We would need to hire more developers. We would need to double down on marketing. But I could not do it. This path would lock me up for the next 5 to 7 years. It did not excite me. It terrified me. We declined the contract. I had to dig deep into my thinking. Why did it terrify me, what was wrong with being in SEO the next five years? It's a shrinking market. SEO as we know it will be completely different in 5 years. It will be over taken by voice. Why would we shed blood sweat and years of our life that will lose to voice in 5 years? We won't and that's why I am joining AlphaVoice.

    You figure the voice input is converted to text and then used as the search seed/string...can't see this changing any time soon...

    To be fair to the voice tech pimp, SEO probably will be very different in 5 years just as it was different 5 years ago...

    Many reverse engineer SEO for fun and profit and google et al have to revise the rules.

    Every business needs a name. Every name needs a website and/or an email address. Every smartphone needs as email address for an account. Every social media account needs an email address. Every email address needs a domain name.

    Wired threw another log on the death of domaining fire with Lily Hay Newman article titled “GOOGLE WANTS TO KILL THE URL” published 09.04.18. The meat of the article is more speculative and less draconian than the title. Excerpts: “...this will mean big changes in how and when Chrome displays URLs” and “the Chrome team itself is still divided on the best solution to propose. And the group won't offer any examples at this point of the types of schemes they are considering.”

    Domainers think in too broad of terms. Everyone needs food yet 80% of all restaurants go under in five years. The real issue is not about the domaining industry as a whole but your individual portfolio. Just because a company needs a domain doesn't mean they need YOUR domains. Only a tiny fraction of domainers own domains that companies/individuals perceive that they NEED.

    I tried to pitch I*o*t*m*m*s to SAP recently and got directed to this guy.

    I was directed to him after I tried to call the CEO of SAP and the assistant forwarded me to him.

    He's SAP's
    Vice President, Digital & Social Optimization

    He decides the buying of domains I guess for the company.

    He told me SAP liquidated thousands of domains because he felt his expertise would better serve the company than having an inventory of domains.

    I took a look at SAP's domain inventory and it's pretty much crap. Just a bunch of domains renewed since 2000 of products and services they no longer provide.

    And some hyphenated domains and domains in obscure extensions.

    Is this the kind of "blockers" we all have now? The SEO expert who gets paid to get a company on the first page results for keywords they want to be "Kings" of without the need for exact match domains?

    Maybe not the death of domaining but the death of exact match domains for products and services?
